Who is the 12 Step Witch?I started casting circles and working nature magic at age 12. After practicing solitary for many years, I recently began working in the Reclaiming tradition. I began my journey to sobriety 10 years ago, and have been clean and sober for 7 years. I have a sponsor, sponsor other women, and have a homegroup (two, actually!) I do not speak for 12 step programs. This is my experience only. I blog anonymously out of respect for the anonymity tradition of 12 Step programs.
